The stunning new legal thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Hanging Judge, “a talent to watch” (The Washington Post). When FBI agents barge into Sidney Cranmer’s home accusing him of a heinous crime, the respected literature professor’s life becomes a nightmare. Cranmer insists the illicit material found by the agents isn’t his, but the charge against him appears airtight, and his academic specialty—the life and work of controversial author Lewis Carroll, creator of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland—convinces investigators he’s lying. Presiding over the case against Professor Cranmer, U.S. District Judge David Norcross fears his daily confrontation with evil has made him too jaded to become a husband and father. His girlfriend, Claire Lindemann, teaches in the same department as the defendant and is convinced of his innocence. Soon, she will take matters into her own hands. Meanwhile—with his love life in turmoil and his plans for the future on hold—a personal tragedy leaves Norcross responsible for his two young nieces. Unbeknownst to him, a vengeful child predator hovers over his new family, preparing to strike. Michael Ponsor’s debut novel, The Hanging Judge, was praised by retired Supreme Court justice John Paul Stevens for reminding readers “that the judicial process is not infallible” and by Pulitzer Prize–winning author Tracy Kidder for bearing “the heft of authenticity.” The One-Eyed Judge again draws on Ponsor’s thirty years as a US district judge, offering readers an insider’s view of one of the most harrowing kinds of cases faced by the courts. Fast-paced, thrilling, and thought-provoking, this is legal fiction at its most realistic and compelling. The One-Eyed Judge is the 2nd book in the Judge Norcross Novels, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

August ist anders. Dennoch wünscht er sich, wie alle Jungen in seinem Alter, kein Außenseiter zu sein. Weil er seit seiner Geburt so oft am Gesicht operiert werden musste, ist er noch nie auf eine richtige Schule gegangen. Aber jetzt soll er in die fünfte Klasse kommen. Er weiß, dass die meisten Kinder nicht absichtlich gemein zu ihm sind. Am liebsten würde er gar nicht auffallen. Doch nicht aufzufallen ist nicht leicht, wenn man so viel Mut und Kraft besitzt, so witzig, klug und großzügig ist - wie August.

Friendship with the Judge came at a pivotal time in Doc's life; he quickly became the closest, truest, most generous brother Doc ever knew. They were a chemical reaction when they came together with a thought, an idea or a plan to pull off another coup. As the saying goes, "There's synergy creating energy that's stronger than the sum of its parts." That was Doc and the Judge, the Judge was fire, Doc was water. The Judge was all reaction and Doc was all control. Doc and the Judge redefined "business as usual." They didn't just "break on through to the other side" as Jim Morrison urged in his hypnotic sixties reverie they crashed and crashed on through! They made tons of money for the grey suits that supported and funded them, and a tidy pile of cash for themselves along the way. Though it was truly not about the money for them, it was about being "dudes." They defined themselves, daring the world to defy their ability to turn cultural trends into big money returns for the true believers who backed them. They never compromised, never shrank from a battle and never feared losing it all. Their business acumen and inherent credibility was inextricably linked to their integrity and musical and business authenticity. Doc watched over the Judge for his own good and the Judge knew and respected his faith. The Judge was a searing, shooting star flashing blindingly across the night sky and defiantly demanding acceptance on his own terms. The Doc executed the business and kept it real. They took on the world, bought and sold it many times over laughing ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK. They were inseparable during the decade of the 70's, Butch and the Kid many called them. The Judge always swore he ruled his court. Doc smiles at these memories suspecting that even now he's hanging out with God and is slipping a wickedly powerful toke or perhaps a St. Pauli's girl to the Apostles when the big "G" isn't looking.

Occasionally, Denver bookman Cliff Janeway has one of those perfect days - he sells a couple of good books and he buys something even better - perhaps a tough-to-find Steinbeck in mint condition. Even the jacket is fine. Working from his store on seedy Colfax Avenue, Janeway doesn't have enough of those days, but he's not complaining. Things are looking up because of his new partner and friend, lawyer Erin d'Angelo. So when Erin asks Janeway for a favor, it's hard to say no. She wants him to go over the mountain to the small town of Paradise where a former good friend, Laura Marshall, is in jail, accused of killing her husband. What happened at the Marshalls' remote mountain home? Did Laura kill Bobby, or is she trying to protect her oldest son? And where were the three children when the shooting occurred? What did they see? Rich with fascinating book lore and a tension-filled plot that's full of surprises, The Sign of the Book is the best yet from an acclaimed author who is himself first and always a "bookman."

From the author of The One-Eyed Judge: A New York Times–bestselling novel about a federal death penalty trial from the perspective of the presiding judge. When a drive-by shooting in Holyoke, Massachusetts, claims the lives of a drug dealer and a hockey mom volunteering at an inner-city clinic, the police arrest a rival gang member. With no death penalty in Massachusetts, the US attorney shifts the double homicide out of state jurisdiction into federal court so he can seek a death sentence. The Honorable David S. Norcross, a federal judge with only two years on the bench, now presides over the first death penalty case in the state in decades. He must referee the clash between an ambitious female prosecutor and a brilliant veteran defense attorney in a high-stress environment of community outrage, media pressure, vengeful gang members, and a romantic entanglement that threatens to capsize his trial—not to mention the most dangerous force of all: the unexpected. Written by judge Michael Ponsor, who presided over Massachusetts’s first capital case in over fifty years, The Hanging Judge explores the controversial issue of capital punishment in a dramatic and thought-provoking way that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It is “a crackling court procedural” (Anita Shreve) and “gripping legal thriller” (Booklist) perfect for fans of Scott Turow.

***JETZT ODER NICHTS – der provokante Gesellschaftsentwurf der international bekannten Bestsellerautorin Naomi Klein (›NoLogo‹ und ›Die Schock-Strategie‹)*** Vergessen Sie alles, was Sie über den Klimawandel zu wissen meinten: Es geht nicht nur um CO2-Emissionen, es geht um den Kapitalismus! Die weltbekannte Aktivistin Naomi Klein weckt uns aus der kollektiven Ohnmacht angesichts der Klimakatastrophe. In einer packenden Vision zeigt sie, dass wir uns dieser existentiellen Herausforderung stellen können. Wir müssen unser Wirtschaftssystem des Immer-mehr aufgeben und etwas radikal Neues wagen. Denn überall auf der Welt gibt es bereits überraschende und inspirierende Alternativen. Brillant gedacht, fundiert recherchiert, hoffnungsvoll und spannend. Ein Buch, das aufrüttelt und Lust auf die Zukunft macht. »Die Klimakatastrophe kann die Welt zum Besseren ändern.« — Naomi Klein »Naomi Klein befasst sich in ihrer unbestechlichen, leidenschaftlichen und akribischen Art mit den größten und drängendsten Fragen unserer Zeit. Ihr Werk hat die Spielregeln der Debatte verändert. Für mich zählt sie zu den inspirierendsten politischen Vordenkern der Welt von heute.« — Arundhati Roy »Zweifellos eines der wichtigsten Bücher des Jahrzehnts.« — Amitav Ghosh »Naomi Klein ist ein Genie. Sie hat für das Feld der Politik das geleistet, was Jared Diamond für die Erforschung der Geschichte des Menschen getan hat. Meisterhaft verwebt sie politische, ökonomische und historische Fakten und verdichtet sie zu einfachen und mächtigen Wahrheiten mit universeller Anwendbarkeit.« — Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. »Naomi Kleins klare Sprache und ihr Scharfsinn, machen Lust auf Veränderung und verdeutlichen die Notwendigkeit zum sofortigen Handeln.« — Charlize Theron »Eine mitreißende Pflichtlektüre!« — Michael E.

The colony world of Stittara is no ordinary planet. For the interstellar Unity of the Ceylesian Arm, Stittara is the primary source of anagathics: drugs that have more than doubled the human life span. But the ecological balance that makes anagathics possible on Stittara is fragile, and the Unity government has a vital interest in making sure the flow of longevity drugs remains uninterrupted, even if it means uprooting the human settlements. Offered the job of assessing the ecological impact of the human presence on Stittara, freelance consultant Dr. Paulo Verano jumps at the chance to escape the ruin of his personal life. He gets far more than he bargained for: Stittara's atmosphere is populated with skytubes—gigantic, mysterious airborne organisms that drift like clouds above the surface of the planet. Their exact nature has eluded humanity for centuries, but Verano believes his conclusions about Stittara may hinge on understanding the skytubes' role in the planet's ecology—if he survives the hurricane winds, distrustful settlers, and secret agendas that impede his investigation at every turn.
